Estonia fought for their independence 1918-20 and 4000 lost their lives. After the war they decided to build a memorial, but Soviet occupation stopped that process. After regaining their independence back, it was time to build memorial in 2009 after design competition. It is 23,5 meters tall with Cross of Liberty on the top. 143 pieces of glass made it to look like to me that it is under renovation.
Monument is located at Freedom Square opposite of the St. John's Church, which is on the eastern side of the square.
Summary: Worth visiting, to understand how much Estonians appreciate their independence after occupation.

Did'nt actually see much of it as it was mostly covered for restoration, maintenance and cleaning. Situated on Freedom Square you really cannot miss it.

Located in the square next to Old Town it is a nice monument. It does stand out in the square, from a tourist point of view nothing special but always worth a few moments of appreciation. It is near Old Town and easy to include in a walking tour.
